Ashley and Vince's Antebellum Christmas Wedding

Today's #RealWedding feature comes at the most wonderful time of the year; Christmas! This magical day was photographed and submitted by Andie Freeman Photography and she did such a wonderful job capturing Ashley and Vince's beautiful Christmas wedding. Let's take a look into the details of their big day!

Merry Christmas Wedding

The couple chose the Carl House in Auburn, Georgia for their big day. This Antebellum-style home held all the architectural characteristics that these neoclassical homes are known for; gorgeous structures and gorgeous, aged fixtures. Ashley and Vince utilized the home's large indoor ballroom for a truly stunning and unique reception venue.

Throughout the day, you'll notice they incorporated many fun and traditional Christmas items such as a large, decorated Christmas tree, candy canes and lots of shiny, dazzling ornaments. And don't forget the garland and Christmas lights, which really set the scene for the special day.

One of our favorite touches from the day is the gorgeous pop of color that the red roses bring. Through the bouquets, the boutonnieres and the decor; the roses really complete the beauty of the winter setting.

The ceremony held gorgeous Christmas decor of it's own. We love the garland balls with frosted pine cones, ornaments and berries. They made for great decor accents down the aisle.

For their seating cards, the couple hand-wrote their guests names and table numbers onto little gift-tags and hung them from ribbon on their seating chart board. The matching gift tags with table numbers were placed at the center of each table, along with a ring of pine garland, a large vase and an ivory votive candle.

Vince and Ashley also had an exquisite hot chocolate bar (complete with fluffy whipped cream) to warm up their guests on a very chilly evening. Guests absolutely loved the extra-ordinary (and delicious) touch and it definitely made for some very fun and playful pictures as well!

For their wedding favors, the guests all got to take home a customized Christmas ornament to remember the special day by.

The couple had a gorgeous wedding cake layered with the same stunning red roses that we seen earlier in the day. Now Vince is a big baseball fan. So for his groom's cake, they made him a baseball-themed cake to incorporate his love of the game. They both turned out beautifully!

And at the very end of the night, guests celebrated the love of Vince and Ashley with a sparkler exit. What a beautiful end to a beautiful day!
